MT – Day 23 – McDonald Falls, Glacier National Park

3 photos in this post.

At first glance, McDonald Falls seems like a boring stop by the roadside as the viewpoint is quite a ways down from the falls and not that clear. Never fear, there is a way down!

As we were looking at the falls, we realized that there were people on the opposite end (east) of the pull-in right on top of the falls. How to get there! The kids soon discovered an ‘unofficial’ path wound its way down through the woods. It’s a short, steep path which brings you right out onto the dry rocks above the falls which is a much better view!

Well worth a visit 🙂 Right alongside the Going to the Sun Road up from Lake McDonald if you are driving from west to east.
